Back to work and back to reality…What that means for me is more dedicated studying for the GREs and for my research fellowship.
In the new year, I’m trying to be more consistent and thoughtful in my short and long-term goals. I would say I am a dreamer, and while my passions are far-reaching, I have a tendency to jot down notes for future ideas and never follow through. Hopefully I’ll be able to change some of those habits into being more fruitful. This year I am doing my best to put my health and well-being first, including surrounding myself with friends and family that challenge me & push me to be better. I’ve had a good run in 2015 with new friends and chances to reconnect with old. But in 2016, I’m hoping to solidify those opportunities and really express how grateful I am to have those people in my life.
In that spirit, a lot of this week’s tunes go out to my good friends Lia & Alyssa who introduced me to more of Troye Sivan’s music. Good, good stuff. A talented musician and so young. It’s people like him that make me question my entire life. He’s 20 and is already so accomplished.
I guess in 2016, I should also try and stop making so many comparisons of myself to other talented people. I…will start doing that next week. I can only focus on so many things at once!
What are some of your goals for the new year and are there any songs that you are already digging in January?
with gratitude & affection,
